Oxenberg changes hats from family historian to writing teacher, offering a unique and interactive “live” version of her online writing workshop, “Are You A Writer? Take The Challenge.” A fun and engaging experi-ence, the workshop is designed to kickstart the creative juices of aspiring writers in an environment that is energizing, empowering and inspiring.
Our one-hour sessions designed as challenges where attendees are forced to think fast with improvisational-style writing drills. Provocative subject matter is provided by Oxenberg and a time limit and the pressure is on. Even those who have trouble getting started soon find their feet and they start writing. After pens are down a peer-driven feedback is encouraged. Despite the restrictions often very good work is created and the shared experience is invigorating for all. Oxenberg also offers her “alumni” the opportunity to have their work published on her workshop website and to stay engaged with her growing online literary community. This is a wonderful, welcoming event for fledgling and de-veloping writers to find or strengthen the unique voice that Oxenberg be-lieves is within so many of us.
